Graphite Gneiss added to Rock Garden!

Wednesday, July 24, 2013

This Summer Barry Warner, Chair of the Earth sciences department, went on a journey of epic proportions across Canada to find rocks suitable for the Peter Russell Rock Garden.

His first stop was at the town of Kearney, just north of Halliburton and near Warner's childhood home. Here he visited the new graphite mine in Kearney and was able to find a beautiful piece of graphite gneiss, which is now residing in the rock garden!
